there is a "check" plug on the bottom of the trans pan. remove it while the engine is running and warm. if fluid leaks out, its overfull. simply let it leak until it stops and the level will be correct. if nothing comes out, add fluid through the fill hole (15/16" plug on the drivers side of the trans.)while the engine is still running. when it starts to come out of the check plug hole, its full. stop filling with fluid and let the excess fluid drain out the check hole until it stops. replug both and your'e done! ***IMPORTANT*** this trans requires WS (world standard) atf. anything but will cause poor shifting and possible damage to the transmission!

add until full and stop at the full mark when warm.

Transmission fluid will show full when it is cold, but low when it is hot if it is low on fluid. Transmission fluid has to be checked when the car is warm.

about 7 there is an over flow screw located from underneath on the side of the transmission.. as soon as the fluid starts to come out there it is full

there is no dip stick, there is a plug under the transmission that you have to take out and if fluid comes out it is full, it is only a 1/4 inch plug.

Add transmission fluid until the dipstick reads full.

You can check the automatic transmission fluid with the transmission fluid dipstick. There will be indicators on the dipstick. The indicators will tell you if the fluid level is full or if you need to add fluid.

The fluid level is checked by loosening an Allen head bolt in the transmission pan. If the fluid starts to leak out, it is full. If not, it needs transmission fluid.

The 2 lines that come from the transmission and go to the radiator are full of transmission fluid and the radiator is what cools it.

what is the problem when the car will not go in drive or reverse? and the transmission fluid is still full

19 qts full change/torque converter included.

It could. When overfull the fluid can aerate, which will cause slipping and a loss of lubrication.

User Avatar

If your dipstick reads "Full", then you do not need to add any fluid. Be certain to follow manufacturer instructions when checking fluid level. Your torque converter is part of the transmission, when speaking of fluid, so if the transmission is full, the torque converter is also.

Many times a transmission will not function properly when the transmission fluid is low. Check the transmission fluid and fill to the full mark.

The most common cause for a transmission not to change gears, is low transmission fluid. Check the transmission fluid and fill to the full line.

To check the transmission fluid for a 2005 Malibu 3.5, the first step is to block the wheels so the car will not move. Start the car and put the car in neutral, then open the hood and locate the transmission dip stick. Pull out the dip stick, wipe off with a paper towel and insert it back into to tube. Take it out again and note where the fluid level is. If it is on add, add one quart at a time of the proper transmission fluid until the dipstick level is at full.

Your vehicle should take dexron3. If you want to spend alittle extra get a full synthetic transmission fluid ( note: if you use full synthetic your transmission will need to be flushed in order to benefit from the synthetic fluid )

The transmission fluid needs to be changed in a 1996 Nissan Sentra every 30,000 miles. The transmission fluid capacity is shown when the dip stick registers full.

you need to check your transmission fluid while your car or truck is running to get accurate results

how much automatic transmission fluid does a 2004 monte carlo ss take on a full flush

User Avatar

According to the computer at AutoZone, the 6 cylinder automatic transmission takes Dex VI fluid, but I read online that it takes DEX III. I don't know which is correct or if it even matters, but I would highly recommend using synthetic transmission fluid. Research the process carefully!!! If the transmission fluid is too old, you could cause serious damage by replacing the transmission fluid. Also, you need to take the vehicle in to the professionals for an actual full fluid change. It may be best simply to drain about 3 quarts by yourself and then add 3 new quarts. Perhaps look into Lucas Oil's Tranny Fix or Tranny Conditioner.

read the stick ..if you are past the full line your over full

User Avatar

Under the car on the upper side of the transmission you will find a plug. Remove the plug and stick you finger in the hole. If you feel fluid, then it is full.

User Avatar

The transmission may need to be rebuilt. If it is automatic you can try dropping the transmission oil pan and replacing the filter and fluid.

Check to see how low the fluid is on the dip stick. Add fluid in small amounts, about one fourth of a quart at a time. Keep checking the level until the transmission is full but not over full.
